Primary Authority Assured Advice

Assurity Consulting have Primary Authority (Co-ordinated partnership) Assured Advice for our Legionella risk assessments.

“A business that chooses to participate in Primary Authority is demonstrating a commitment to working in partnership with regulators, and a desire to improve its experience of local regulation.”

“Advice is often referred to as ‘Assured Advice’ because, with the back-up of the statutory scheme, the regulatory community is expected to accept that if the business is following the Primary Authority Advice it is meeting its regulatory responsibilities. Businesses may be particularly likely to seek Primary Authority Advice where they are making significant compliance decisions, often with major financial implications, and require the reassurance that they will not face local inconsistency.”
